Why You Can Eat Candy After Your Workouts!

October 26, 2017

You didn't misread the title and, yes, I did add pictures of Pixy Stix and Gummy Bears in a still-frame from the video I created. Why? Because a lot of people tend to be misinformed about some "Nutritionally Ethical" post-workout routines that professional athletes tend to use almost daily! Have you ever heard of Oakland Raiders Running Back, Marshawn Lynch? Well, he's notorious for eating skittles during football games. During any exercise, our body uses stored glucose to fuel the muscles and these sugars (from the Skittles) help to quickly give a little refuel/boost. Now, this isn't a replacement* or a one-snack-fits-all type of remedy because you still need salt, potassium and protein after a workout. My main message here isn't for everyone to celebrate their Halloween workouts with 5 candy bars and 2 bags of gummy bears. The message I want to get across is that if you're stuck in a diet and you're looking for a time to have a cheat snack to get you through the week, a post-workout candy fix won't hurt too much at all! Check out the video for some more details.
